The Child Nutrition Services Program, an extension of the educational program of the schools, is operated under the federally funded National School Lunch and Nutrition Act. The federal laws regulating the school food services programs are administered under the United States Department of Agriculture and carried out within the Commonwealth of Virginia by the State Department of Education.

A written agreement is made by the division superintendent with the Virginia State Department of Education for each individual federal lunch program and federal breakfast program. These agreements with the state agency assure all programs are in compliance with the regulations and qualify for the federal cash reimbursements and donated foods. All Newport News Public Schools participate in the National School Breakfast and Lunch Program.

All students in Newport News Public Schools are eligible to receive a healthy breakfast and lunch for free each school day during the school year.
